Just in case you were wondering, Soulja Boy is still the Mayor and sole occupant of DummyTown. It hasn’t been that long since he made some very bad career decisions such as impersonating the neighborhood crackhead during an interview with The Breakfast Club or redefining true love by snatching up Mother of the Year Black Chyna and making her his lady for all of five minutes before moving on. But in addition to these productive life goals, Soulja Boy also enjoys the excitement of being handcuffed and taken to a place where spitting bars gets replaced with prison bars, because he’s been arrested again on a charge he’s all too familiar with.
That was fast. It was only a week ago that we posted about how Blac Chyna was humping on a new boy, Soulja Boy, specifically. And now they’re most likely done. They must’ve had one of those extra short contracts. Continue reading
Call me naive but I still think of Soulja Boy as the little young boy who used to superman that hoe with his infectious song “Crank That“. However, that was over a decade ago and now he looks more like the fanciest neighborhood fiend draped in costume jewelry. When I first saw him during his appearance on The Breakfast Club I asked myself “Flavor Flav is still booking interviews?” And that was the first of many questions to enter my mind over the course of the next fifty-four minutes as Soulja Boy started saying a whole bunch of things you can’t tell me weren’t sponsored by the words “drugs“, “drama” and “lies“.
If you’ve ever wondered what will become of these barely legal little rappers like Lil Pump or Lil Xan when the money’s dried up and they realize they can never hold a normal job, look no further than “Crank That” dance sensation Soulja Boy. After he stopped making hit records, he tried to maintain relevance by getting into a public feud with Chris Brown that almost led to a live Pay-Per-View fight held in Dubai, sponsored by Floyd Mayweather Jr. Thankfully somebody flinched on that one, leaving Soulja to secure his bag elsewhere. Now he’s an entrepreneur hawking everything from cheap Bluetooth watches (the so-called Soulja Watch), to eye-wear, light-up sneakers, and an online radio station. His latest business venture is selling Soulja Boy branded video game consoles.
Chris Brown was supposed to fight Soulja Boy, one of his many, many enemies, in a messy pay-per-view boxing match. It was all pretty much set-up and ready to go. Soulja Boy was getting training from Floyd Mayweather Jr., Chris Brown was getting training from Mike Tyson, and they were finalizing a location. But Chris Brown has now pulled out. At least that’s what Soulja Boy says.
Chris Brown and Soulja Boy are apparently still going through with that boxing match. Soulja Boy, who claims the fight is happening in March in either Las Vegas or Los Angeles and not Dubai, hired Floyd Mayweather Jr. to train him. Chris Brown has proven repeatedly that he’s proficient at punching and doesn’t technically need a trainer, but he got one anyway. Chris Brown has hired Mike Tyson as his coach. “Why did I just get the chills?” thought every operator of a domestic violence hotline. One of Mike’s first duties as Chris Brown’s team was to release a diss track aimed at Soulja Boy called If You Show Up.
